Henry Martin, Democratic candidate for 6th District United States Representative, was in Memphis on Thursday March 19th to meet with county and city officials as he made stops across northeast Missouri.
“A focus of my campaign is to return a voice to all of the 6th District, which means getting out and hearing from the people I hope to represent,” said Martin.
The candidate stated he met with the Scotland County Commission and heard concerns about declining infrastructure, particularly roads, bridges and highways, both at the county and state levels.
Martin’s campaign has shown interest in potentially transforming Highway 36 to an interstate system to help alleviate the traffic and pressure on the aging I-70 corridor and also serve as an economic stimulus for business growth in northern Missouri.
Martin also met with city officials to discuss federal funding options for similar infrastructure projects, and learned about the ongoing million dollar municipal project to upgrade the city’s sewer system.
Martin, a native of Jefferson City, is a Persian Gulf veteran and a 19-year veteran of public education as a teacher and administrator.
Following his stop in Memphis he was making similar visits in Clark County.
